Default Style under 500cc...?

Last week I saw a bike that resembled a Honda CBR600, but was clearly under 500cc. It was white, had thinner rims/tires and the profile of the bike was smaller. It was definitely less than 4-5 years old. It looked like Honda's version of a Ninja 250 (waaaay cooler looking)...

I can't find the model on the net and was wondering if anyone knows the model name of this bike....!?!?!

Was it a 4 cylinder? Two? Honda made a CB400 "Super Four" from 1991 to around 2001.

Here's a link to a CB400 page:

If it resembled the CBR600RR - likely it was the CBR125; a 125cc 4-stroke single.

Sold in Canada.

So solly USA - dis anodda bike you no gettie.........

The only thing that comes close is the Varadero 125. Apart from that, I do not see a current model that matches your description.

Try here: Honda CBR125

Follow the "Go" crap.

Available in Red, White, and a Bichin' Black. I'd probably buy one if they offered it here. Seriously, I want this bike more than anything-else in Honda's lineup.

"I want this bike more than anything-else in Honda's lineup"
-Can't argue, really. I think I'd rather it have a 250cc engine just so it isn't screaming all of the time. But if it's set up nice, sure, I'm in.

Kawasaki's 250 will do 80 all day. I'm on freakin' back roads over here. I think it would be perfect.

It would be great if Kawasaki actually updates the styling like it's been rumored.

If it was a V-twin, maybe it was a Hyosung Comet 250 (or whatever they're called now by United Motors or S&T).

Also, Kawasaki's confirmed that 2008 is bringing a new Ninja 250 design to the US. I wonder if you'd seen a test mule. In related news, Satan bought a new winter coat.
